    what is your boot time from the moment you hit the power-button till the usable desktop appears...

    by usable of course I mean where you can click and where there is no hourglass or whatever you have on your screen denoting cpu is busy...

    Not counting the 4 - 5 seconds it takes to enter logon name/password, 14 seconds, don't know if that's good or bad. I've disabled a load of services I will never need (Help and support, UPS, etc.) and all but one startup file (systray).

    I have automatic login so I just time it from when I push the button to when the screen loads...

    I am getting a total of around 15 seconds... :)

    maybe some more RAM and alittle oc'ing will fix that lol...

    I have yet to tweak out my xp to your extent and I do have norton systemworks load up... but that only takes like a second

    :)
     
  4. IT takes about 15 secs to get to the login screen, then it Takes about a 30 secs to load up all the shiznit...but that's cos i have so much stuff to load up...3 norton products, Modem stuff, Keyboard and mouse shortcuts...

    21 sec untill everthing is loaded....

    And i've got several questions....


    "Why do a have to click on START when i want to STOP...????"

    "Why does a PC need LOAD time when a car starts direct when you turn the key?"

    "Why does windows always ask to press the OK button when hes got an error..thats NOT OK!"

    "Why after a driver installation doe I have to press the reboot-button? I cant choose another option":confused:

    "When Windows can''t find a mouse i've to click on OK to continue...THERE's NO MOUSE....:mad:"

    so...thats my opinion!
